statistic. liga goes on to say that one in four women have experienced domestic violence and he says most importantly it's important that we all know that there is help out there. there are resources before it gets to this. tisha lewis, fox 5 local news. >> certainly important reminders. our coverage continues on our website fox5dc.com and on our fox 5 news app. you can learn more about the funeral service details and also how to donate to the officer's family. >> developing in southeast dc, one person has died in a house fire on massachusetts avenue near southern avenue. the call for help came in around 8:00 tonight. so far the victim's name and the cause of the fire have not been released. investigators are on the scene. in mount airy maryland, police are questioning a person who is suspecting of firing gun shots around cars. as they drove along woodville

down. >> reporter: cruz and rubio are on the attack. some see rubio's tactics as a sign of desperation. trump's endorsement by the kkk doesn't seem to be making a dent in his numbers so far. >> if this kkk and david duke incident sort of seep into the voters' minds, if his tax issue and the fact that he isn't releasing his tax returns, if that seeps into voters' minds. some of those late deciders may go for somebody else. >> reporter: and in another interesting twist, ted cruz cited a buzz feed report claiming "the new york times" has a secret tape. cruz is pushing trump to ask the times to release that tape to the public. >> looking forward to tomorrow. virginia is the only state in our region involved in the super tuesday primary race along with alabama,

change things up again as we get toward the end of the week. still pretty comfortable in spots, although other areas have dropped down just a little bit but we do think it is a terrific super tuesday for temperatures, that is for sure. and the first day of meteorological spring, march 1st. average high for us 51 degrees. tomorrow we're going to be well above it at 62. and not too far from it on wednesday at 54. but the thing about wednesday's temperature, it will probably occur in the morning and drop through the afternoon as the wind picks up, as the cold air comes in. might have to watch for a couple of flurries. we know there will be a few inches in the mountains. we'll watch that for you. thursday is the colder day at 42 degrees and as that chilly air is in place on friday, we will be watching the placement of colder air as well as a storm system that will likely be passing by our area. could produce small accumulation of snow, might be rain could still head out to
handle on it, if not tomorrow certainly as we get closer to wednesday and wednesday night. 41 degrees is our temperature in gaithersburg right now, 36 at culpeper. up 1 degrees there, and 49 for the district. not too terribly cold tonight. as we look across much of the country, we have one little system passing by to the northeast. this is what we'll be watching late tomorrow night. after 10:00 or 11:00, we may run the risk of seeing some showers pushing into our western suburbs and some of them could be on the moderate side as you see with our brighter colors here. it might even be beginning to rain here in the district. we run all of that through pretty quickly so that most of the area is dry by 7:00 a.m. but you're still getting showers through lower southern maryland, the delmarva and the northern neck and you can see the snow beginning to pile up, just not piling up a lot, just a couple of inches in the mountains but that's definitely something we'll be watching and maybe picking up
of rain. it's all about the cold that starts coming in wednesday afternoon, we're getting chillier into thursday. and when you see our 7-day forecast, friday with a temperature of 40. we're keeping an eye on the possibility of thursday night into friday maybe having a little issue with some snow and we're thinking it would be a rather small accumulation, not a big one, but sometimes it doesn't take much to cause proble and the national weather service has us in a slight risk of that winter storm threat as we get into friday night. the weekend settles down and begins to warm up. 50, we'll take it. and monday, 56 degrees. that's your weather forecast. jim, over to you. >> all right. luz. i called her by her daughter's name. thank you, sue. yesterday the wizards got one over the cavs. playing the sixers for the
and take a look. floyd "money" mayweather in the front row. he's in town to promote a boxing march april 1st. serious throwdown to give the sixers an 8-point lead. january wall had an answer. and then the fourth quarter, wall does it again. scoring a game high 37 points. the wizards win 116-108. sixth straight victory at home i'm telling you the verizon center has been lucky for a lot of times. the ends of an era for the caps fans, he was traded. it's a case of business winning out over loyalty. who are the caps getting for like? a toronto native who brings with him an esy
$2.2 million cap over the next to seasons. he will play on the caps fourth line. >> he's a really good -- similar role to brooks lake. bigger player. heavier player. pretty good skater. i would say he's the equivalent of brooks like, maybe a touch of an upgrade. >> right? >> come on. >> and here's a case -- this is great. this is a case of sports media in real life. a touching tribute to ashley guindon. he inscribed her name on his cleats as he went through the drills. take a look. he plans to give one shoe to the guindon family and auction off the other with proceeds going to her memorial fund. it really shows you there that sometimes people know there's a higher calling than sports. perfect right
>> that speaks volumes. >> it really does. what a guy. >> what's with your fast nation with sue palka's durt. she mentioned her daughter liz before and that was the second time. i had never met her. >> just so you know. >> she's engaged. i know that already. >> just checking. >> make it a little more awkward. [ laughter ] >> still ahead tonight at 11:00, a look at the newly released fastest car in the world. it's expensive too. we'll be right back.
i don't know how jim knows about that. business insizer reports the audio system features a 1 carat diamond membrane in the speakers. the manufacture even considered what type of leather interior wouldn't distort the sound quality because of the diamond membranes. >> i'm totally getting a hint of bat mobile. >> yes, i like that. >> it's $2.6 million. are you kidding me? >> even if i was rich enough. >> no. >> i would keep digging through the speakers trying to find that diamond. >> me too! >> stay tuned, tmz is next. join us again for fox 5 news morning starting at 4:25. >> have a good night everybody.
